[NY] Yoga for People of Color

  • Primary 26 Broadway, 8th Floor New York, NY, 10004 United States (map)

Creators: Brittany Anderson, Yoga Instructor, and Cassandra Lam, Co-Founder of The Cosmos

Mindfulness practices contribute to healthier lifestyles, but all too often, those of us that need and deserve access to these tools are left out of the conversation. Time, money, and lack of diversity in the wellness world often prevent people of color from comfortably accessing resources, knowledge, and tools for wellness.

Our 3-hour Yoga for People of Color workshop strives to gather people of color in a supportive space that promotes empowerment, healing, and connection to our selves and our community while inspiring important dialogue.

The workshop will include a 1-hour slow flow yoga class, activities, and thoughtfully facilitated discussion (with lots of time for questions!) on topics such as:

  • What is mindfulness, yoga, and self-care? How can these practices help me in my everyday life?

  • Yoga is for every body and everybody: addressing common misconceptions and stereotypes about yoga

  • Benefits of a yoga practice: managing stress, calming the nervous system, mental health, physical health and mobility

  • Overcoming guilt related to self-care, self-love, and self-preservation

  • How to start an affordable yoga and self-love practice

Sliding scale pricing: $30-45. Limited spots available. No one turned away for lack of funds - email for information.
